Alan Beans Astronauten-Kunst

spaceart

Alan Bean ist einer von 12 Menschen, die den Mond betraten. Er war Astronaut der Apollo XII, Kommander von Skylab II und außerdem malt er Gemälde. Mit Astronauten. Künstlerisch sind die Arbeiten eher der naiven Malerei zuzurechnen und eher… schlicht. Aber hey, einen Astronauten würde ich mir sofort zuhause hinhängen.

As part of the Apollo XII crew, he became the fourth of only twelve men ever to walk on the Moon. As the spacecraft commander of Skylab Mission II, he set a world record: 24,400,000 miles traveled during the 59-day flight. When he wasn’t flying, Bean always enjoyed painting as a hobby. Attending night classes at St. Mary’s College in Maryland in 1962, Alan experimented with landscapes. During training and between missions as a test pilot and astronaut, he continued private art lessons. On space voyages, his artist’s eye and talent enabled him to document impressions of the Moon and space to be preserved later on canvas.
